Back in February, rumors surfaced of a new LittleBigPlanet game, that would focus around go-karting rather than platforming. Well, it seems that the rumors were true, as Sony Computer Entertainment has officially announced that LittleBigPlanet Karting is in development, and is due out sometime in 2012. Similar to Modnation Racers, the game will be developed by United Front Games, and will feature a robust suite of user-generated content. It seems that Sony and United Front Games have abandoned the world of Modnation Racers for the lovable Sackboy, due to its larger fanbase. This time around, the game will feature local and online multiplayer, in the form of traditional races and battle modes. Mission modes and 2D style racing segments are also shown in the announcement trailer (which you can watch below).

Will you be picking up LittleBigPlanet Karting when it drops later this year? Sound off in the comments below!
